1968 Chevrolet Corvette coupe T-Top

Older body off restoration completed in 2002. Rebuilt with slight modifications. Rims are 8.5" Rally Sport instead of the 7.0" that was original to 1968 vets. The original 427 was incomplete missing the 2x3 carb and intake. One of the previous owners changed the hood to an L-88 with 4 barrel carb andair induction system. I liked the look of the L88 hood, left it onwhen I rebuilt the car. The L88 hood is an original short GM hood not a replica. Matching block and transmission. The motor is modified and dyno'd to506HP. The engine was built by Rex Hutchinson in Sacramento California. Actual CI is 439. Compression ratio 10.78 to 1. Balanced and blue printed. Comp cam CBXE284 H-110 with 570" lift intake and .578 lift exhaust, duration 284/240-296/246. Forged pistons and Eagle I-beam rods. Coated Headman Headers, Edelbrock aluminum heads, Performer Air gap intake, 850 Demon carb. The Base white is the original color, single stage paint. The blue strip was added later to give the car a Motion Performance look. Custom Auto Sound AM/FM radio.
